A Night on Moon Hill by Tanya Parker Mills
Review by Heather B. Moore
Award-winning author, Tanya Parker Mills (2009 Indie Book Award Winner for The Reckoning), delivers a fascinating story in A Night on Moon Hill when Daphne Lessing’s comfortable routine of life is disturbed when she discovers a body in her pool. The body belongs to her most talented creative writing student, and he’s left a poem for her.
When Daphne realizes that the student’s death is not random, but connected to her hidden past, she is faced with several uncomfortable changes that are about to take place. She learns that part of the student’s will includes the request that she take over the care of his half-brother, a ten-year-old boy named Eric, who has Asperger’s syndrome.
A Night on Moon Hill is a carefully crafted and beautifully-written story that follows Daphne’s journey as she discovers that the routine of her life is made much better when she shares it with someone. Eric changes everything, and in those deviations, Daphne finds a better self as she opens her mind to more possibilities in life, including moving forward with courage, and allowing another person into her heart.
